will respectfully disagree with you on that and my point is simply this, that those of us who are supportive of this project, i think we also need to push forward addressing some of the issues that were identified by the fta and i think that those issues are very specific and i think that they're required deliverables that have not been attained. and i think it requires some of the additional reforms that many of us have talked about and as someone who is supportive of this project, i think it's important for us that we go on parallel tracks, that pushs this forward but also pushes comprehensive reform of the mta so this project can be done on time. thank you. president chiu: any additional questions to the representatives of the mta? thank you for your presentation. let me ask if there are members of the public that are supporting the mta's resolutions to move forward to this. are you here for public comments in support of the mta? please step up and each speaker shall have up to two minutes. >> good evening. supervisors, my name is jackie sachs. i'm a member of the transportation authority

approximately 2900 square feet of retail uses. conditional use authorization is required -- requested for the planning code. the project site is relatively large. given that it would severely constrain and limit dwelling units. the project does incorporate a number of variations with the terrain, so staff believes the design meets the criteria. in addition, the sponsor requested three aspects of the project. the internal courtyard does not meet the findings. a number of dwelling units does not meet the exposure on all floors. finally, while it does require 73 off street parking spots, no parking is proposed, so these requests will be considered today. staff believes the project will have significant new affordable housing units in an area within walking distance of retail services and employment opportunities within the financial district. the project is compatible with the nature of the area. it would help activate the area. the planning department believes the project is necessary and desirable and supports approval. this concludes my presentation, and i am available fo

on what is called shaw alley, which as you may or may not know, is a very much used pedestrian access, and in new construction, we wanted to encourage this pedestrian access, both through the site itself and on with to areas south of the site, so the goal here was to take this passageway as it goes through underneath the building and tried to emphasize and distinguish its presence and create a place that would not only attract people in and of itself, but also lead people to the site, to the cafe s and do another ongoing pedestrian site. i guess advancing some of the images here, our own work in my studio -- let's see, is that -- showing you there the site for shaw alley, and briefly to talk to you about our previous work so you get a sense of what the nature of the work is, these are some previous projects. this is in new york city, quite close to lincoln center. it is a large public wall that has a field of glass elements that for jet off the wall, and those glass elements basically capture light and project light and color across its surface. it's very much i debates a wall on the
